What book should I use for my psychoanalytic research paper?

I have to write a research essay based on my interpretation of a book and how it correlates with psychological/Freudian theory. My choices are limited to a small group of books selected by my teacher, but I'm not sure which one is best to write about. So far i've narrowed it down to 3 books: Macbeth, Oedipus Rex, and Catcher in the Rye. They each seem to have strong connotations in this theory and I have an equal understanding of them all as well. Please help me decide which one to write about by telling me which book you'd choose and why. Thank you!

    If memory serves, Catcher in the Rye is an easier read. So I’d choose that.

    I would write on Oedipus Rex, since the psychological aspect is fairly simple: In the ancient Greek play Oedipus Rex (Oedipus the King) by Sophocles, the main character Oedipus, kills a man, not knowing that the man was his biological father. He then marries (mates with) a woman, not knowing that the woman was his biological mother. Sigmund Freud coined the phrase Oedipus Complex, to describe a stage in a young boy’s life, where he wants to kill his own father and take sexual possession of his own mother. Most boys outgrow this stage quickly, but some don’t, and carry this complex into adulthood. If someone is described as having an Oedipus Complex, it means he has a fixation on his mother, or is overly attached to his mother.
